Instructional design is the systematic process by which instructional materials are designed, developed, and delivered. The terms instructional design, instructional technology, educational technology, learning experience design (LX), curriculum design, and instructional systems design (ISD), are often used interchangeably.
With over 20 years of experience, the LAB designs cohesive and effective training curriculums by analyzing the complex skill sets needed to achieve organizational goals, and learner needs.
Effective education and training is based on the identification of the right learning objectives through the performance of needs assessment that properly identifies skill gaps. This is key to effective instructional design especially for non-licensed professions
Many organizations offer continuing education, however, the connection between the educational activity, the needs analysis of the learner and the organizational goals is often missing.
The LAB designs cohesive and effective training curriculums using existing content, identified opportunities for improvement, and augmenting content guided by consultation with subject matter experts when needed, that maximize the learner experience and increase the impact on the organizational goal.
Course design and development includes, purposeful planning, organizing, sequencing, and pacing of course content and consideration of the student learning experience and desired learning outcomes. There are multiple theories on how to fulfill learning outcomes and based on your learner needs and organizational goals, different learning models may be more impactful.
While many experienced instructors possess an inherent sense of design, when teaching and learning online, this pattern of design needs to be made evident, and the enormous amount of detail embedded in an online course means that development is best handled in an organized and deliberate fashion.
Developing content is where art meets education. There are many content development tools that engage learners and drive home the quality of your trainings. The team at the LAB works within your organizations style and branding guides and uses multiple tools to deliver eye catching, engaging content.
From creating custom graphics, custom video, full set design, green screen, video and photo shoots, to creating digital story boards optimized for in person and online formats, the LAB will exceed all of your content development expectations.
While video and photo typically make up less than 1% of content, they present a critical need for effective course development.
Acquiring stock video and photo can be impossible for specific learning needs. Creating original assets can be costly and time consuming.
